Wild Florida offers the most pristine airboat eco tour in the Orlando area....

Wild Florida offers the most pristine airboat eco tour in the Orlando area. Located on the beautiful shores of Cypress Lake, at the headwaters of the Everglades. Just a short drive from Orlando, the Disney area, the Space Coast, and the Orlando International Airport, Wild Florida offers the best of Central Florida's most sought after activities: airboat rides, alligators and real Florida experience. Our airboat tour is widely known as the most beautiful ride in town because of it's untouched 4,200 acre nature preserve, free of any development or signs of human life; 100% pure Florida wilderness at it's finest. We guarantee it! Come see for yourself how good it feels to be in the middle of nowhere.But the fun doesn't stop there! In addition to our incredible airboat rides, we offer a tropical bird aviary, restaurant, gift shop and 500 ft sightseeing dock. Wild Florida is owned and operated by one of Florida's pioneer families that knows the meaning of southern hospitality. Day or night, we are prepared to offer individual, family, group and corporate experiences you'll never forget. And if you thought our airboat ride was fun during the day, you should see how WILD it is at night!

Highlights of my trip included a sloth encounter ($30) where they let you in with 2 sloths so you can feed, pet and take pictures (30 minutes).

The air boat ride is a must! Such a great experience, with informative and friendly staff. A chance to feed alligators bait, interact with animals that you normally wouldn't encounter, hold an alligator and enjoy some good grub!

Very glad I added this to our visit to Orlando. Brilliant air boat ride experience, nice park and we did manage to view some alligators. :) Animal enclosure was nice to walk around. Definitely worth a visit. Friendly and helpful staff as well.

Always wanted to do this and finally was able to. Very fun and safe. Not scary or dangerous as it may look on tv or pictures. Staff explains everything very clear before beginning the adventure. They answer all your questions. Very knowledgeable and professional staff. Affordable prices

It was lovely to have a drive out and see some of real Florida! The boat ride was excellent and our captain was fun and informative! The wildlife park area was... More

We surprised our kids with this tour and it was awesome. I expected the airboat tour to be by far the better part compared to the zoo but that wasn't the case. The airboat rode was awesome. It was great to tour the lake and Logan our guide took time to point out some things. We saw baby alligators right... More

I had a 12 year old and a 15 year old. They enjoyed the boat ride very much and meeting the sloth as well. The staff was nice and made us feel welcome.

The animal park is great, with a good selection of different animals to see and feed. But the top item is the airboat tour. Wow. Captain Jeff took us for a tour of the lake and we saw loads of gators and wildlife, including the iconic American bald eagle. The baby gators in the wild were so cute, but momma... More
